Critique: "This work will serve as a one-stop resource for those looking for accurate information on important policies, events, and notable individuals from this population... The set is highly recommended." - ARBA "This encyclopedia would be most useful for any researcher looking for information on Asian Americans and their history, especially where there is an Asian American population. Recommended for academic and public libraries." - Booklist "This welcome three-volume encyclopedia is the latest addition to a growing number of reference works on the subject. Primarily focused on the social, cultural, economic, and political aspects of Asian Americans in the United States, it encompasses Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders... The set's 55 primary documents are an important feature; they include useful legal background central to the Asian American experience, e.g., Japanese American redress via the Civil Liberties Act of 1988... Recommended." - Choice
